He gets really ornery when he's drunk, so much so that the town builds a jail in one night in order to put him in it before he destroys the town. Too bad he sobered up before morning.
Oh, and there was that one time when he didn't get ornery, but was a bit too agreeable with a nice lady.
I didn't expect the ending, although apparently another reviewer found it predictable.

Pleasant story, excellently read.
I found this is a well-written but predictable story, with some nice touches of humour.
Many thanks to the reader, Tom Penn. for the excellent and faultless narration. I really enjoyed his portrayal of the different characters.
